Happy Hump-Day Beautiful Diva’s!

Yesterday, I got in my hour of cardio with Jillian’s 30 day shred & a 30 minute walk!! So I am feeling Exhilarated today but a little sore! A girlfriend of mine called me & we were talking about something that she & co-worker were discussing; it really made think. She was saying that her co-worker was worried about what other people on the job think of her & if they worry about her being overweight. She was worried what people say about her when she is not around. My girlfriend has always been one to not care what others think of her & she was trying to tell that to her co-worker. Through this journey I have become the same way ~ Not care what other’s think of me.

I realized that you can NOT live YOUR LIFE for Others! So what, who cares what people on the job think of you!! So what, who cares if they think you are overweight!! This is your life, your journey & NO ONE else’s. You can NOT live your life worried about how other’s may be talking about you or calling you. They are not paying your bills, buying your groceries or living your life! So starting LOVING YOU & LIVE for YOU! You are beautiful at a size 22 or at size 8, so learn to embrace YOU!

    Yes, your blog this morning inspired my blog this evening. I feel so badly for people who seem to dwell on what others think (like any of us are mind readers) or actually say about them. If it's just to bring a person down, then why listen?

    I loved it when you wrote about your boys stopping you at the store from buying things that weren't good for you. Now THAT'S when we have to take the time to listen-when someone gives us good advice with caring and LOVE!

    You are so right. For far to long, I worried about others thought about me and it caused me to retreat to my home. No More! Thanks for this post. I needed it!

    Your blog is so true. I gave up caring what others thought a long time ago and glad you are too. . Great tip of the day as usual

    Very true! I used to be overly concerned with what others thought of me but I finally have realized that nothing they think can change who or what I am so there fore it becomes insignificant to me! People can only have as much power over you as you allow them to!

    Cass - thanks for the great post today. Tonight is my intake with the trainer that is doing the boot camp that starts next week. I'm nervous, I've never done something like this before and I can't get that "they are judging me" thought out of my brain. Rationally I know that they don't care how overweight I am but so many years of being told I was fat has taken their tole. But I'm going no matter what - if I can get through this and then boot camp I can do anything. You so fed into what I was feeling today and I'll have to try to remember it.

    I have a new favorite saying that someone left on one of my blogs, 'It's none of my business what other people think of me.' It's so true!

    This is so true!!! At the end of our individual journey's, what we think and how we feel about ourselves is truly what counts!

    When someone tries to put you down, always consider the source. Is that person truly happy in his or her own life? Usually they're not. And they will try to make other people unhappy as well. They've been sippin' on the Haterade for too long and don't mind trying to share it.

    Just put up the wall, the mojo, the force field, whatever it takes to block them!

    I was just thinking about this yesterday.....What a frustration. some ppl just have to be negative-- either you're too big or too skinny. But it's not about them it's about ME. Am I happy with what I'm doing? If yes, keept it going. If no take action. But it's no one's decision but my own.....
    THanks for always making me think

    Amen sista!!! You can only worry about yourself and not what others think about takes some people a long time to realize that sadly....

    (I have the J. Micheals 30 Day Shred as well but I don't consider it cardio since the strength training is more prominent...I probably should have counted it towards my daily
